Malbec from Mendoza | Don Miguel Gascón
About Don Miguel Gascón
We've been growing Malbec and transforming it into wine since 1884, when our founder, Don Miguel Gascón, opened our winery in Mendoza, Argentina.
For centuries, Malbec has been used as a blending grape, half a world away in Bordeaux. But, here in Mendoza, Malbec has reinvented itself as a rich, robust, stand-alone wine.
Argentina is home to more than half a million acres of vines across seven major regions. At the center of it all is Mendoza.
More than 130 years ago, a young Miguel Escorihuela Gascón arrived in Argentina from Aragon, Spain, armed with agricultural skills and an entrepreneurial spirit. In 1884, Gascón bought his first vineyards and built his winery in Mendoza.
